People have been lining up to buy Cronuts since May, when Dominique Ansel first introduced the delicious croissant-doughnut hybrid at his Soho bakery. At first the lines stretched west, then Dominique shifted the line to the east, and then it started curling around the Thompson Street Playground. But this morning, the line stretched past the park, and soon it might even cross Prince Street. Dominique Ansel's recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon might have something to do with this. In other Cronut news, Ansel is now selling a "Crolanthropy" t-shirt, with proceeds going to benefit the Food Bank For New York City. If you wear this shirt in the Cronut line, you can buy twice as many Cronuts as the average customer, and buying one shirt will feed 50 New Yorkers. Good deal, all around.

Here are more pics of this morning's insane line:
